Job Summary
UC Berkeley Extension, the professional and continuing education division at the University of California, Berkeley, invites applications for a pool of qualified instructors to teach on-site or hybrid courses for our Berkeley Global Access (visiting student) Programs.

The mission of the Berkeley Global Access (visiting student) Programs is to extend the reach of UC Berkeley's excellence by providing access and educational opportunities to a broad and diverse community of learners. Our Global Access Programs bring more than 400 students from 20 countries each semester to learn and grow here in Berkeley. We offer academically rigorous, short-term programs for high school graduates, undergraduate and graduate students, and working professionals.

All courses are offered in-person on the UC Berkeley campus with some online instructional components.
